Truth be told, I never really saw myself as a stay-at-home mother. Prior to having Berlin I was insanely career focused, almost to a fault, and admittedly had lofty career goals.
Even while pregnant with Berlin, I could never see myself walking away from my career. I imagined myself jumping right back into the madness, straight off maternity leave: traveling the world, working crazy hours, and basically being the total career centered person I was prior to giving birth.
But as fate would have it, I was laid off from my job while on maternity leave, and was literally handed the amazing opportunity of staying home with my daughter. At first I was deeply petrified about the idea of being a stay-at-home parent. After all, my whole adult life, all I had ever known was the corporate grind. But thankfully, I’m blessed with a terribly supportive husband who convinced me that staying home and raising our daughter was of the utmost importance.
Now as Berlin is getting older, and will be starting preschool in the Fall, I have toyed with the idea of going back to work. I’ve interviewed a few places and kept my options open, but ultimately, my heart isn’t in it any longer.
Since I can remember, I’ve always been passionate about health and fitness, and knew that if I ever took the plunge and switched careers, it would be to follow this passion. At this stage in my life, being happy and healthy, and helping others achieve the same, is most important to me.
So without further ado, please allow me to introduce: Mindful Mama.
I’m currently accepting new clients. So for all you San Francisco mamas who want to get back in shape; in a supportive, kid-friendly environment; please feel free to contact me.
If you’re not a mama, no problem, I love to train all women. So if you want to tone up for that big event, or you just need help losing those last five pounds, I’m here for you as well.
